General Information

Thank you for your interest in Shenzhou Open University of TCM. More than thirty years ago, I opened an acupuncture clinic in Utrecht. After four years, in 1990, I established the European TCM and Acupuncture Advanced Training Centre (ETAATC), now known as Shenzhou Open University of TCM. Expanding the company’s activities resulted in a move to our present location in Amsterdam. As one of the best TCM educational institutes in the Netherlands, we offer a unique curriculum in Acupuncture, Herbal Medicine, Tuina and other traditional Chinese therapies. Our university and graduates take pride in the outstanding reputation which we have built up in the TCM field based on education experience of more than thirty years.

We have tailored our courses to students’ needs, by designing them according to a part-time model, enabling you to study alongside your job and family commitments. Our professional doctors of Chinese Medicine teach medical knowledge and also pay attention to work safety during clinical practice. Care is also given to shape students’ professional behaviour during practice, as well as responsibilities and compassion for the patient. We strive to teach our students to have a high standard of ethics and safety when working in their future profession.

At Shenzhou Open University of TCM, we aspire to create an authentic atmosphere during your classes and clinical apprenticeship. The “Excellent Student Prize” is awarded to students with the highest academic achievement in their study year.

As Director of CMC Tasly Group, I pledge to provide you with the environment needed to help you flourish. Your choice to study Chinese Medicine at Shenzhou Open University of TCM is a bridge to a new stage of your life.

Founder of CMC Tasly Group and Shenzhou Open University of Traditional Chinese Medicine
